The Holy Kingdom of Ellbonnia is a huge, genial nation, ruled by King Gustav VIII with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 902 million Ellbonnians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ptolemaeus. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ellbonnian economy, worth 117 trillion Crowns a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,514 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellbonnia's national animal is the Usian bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ellbonnia is ranked 10,256th in the world and 587th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,671.2 Tourists Per Hour.
